Bumbershoot Prom W/ Allen Stone
PROM. I didn't go to mine, but somehow managed to go to 2 of them after I graduated, so what the hell, why not make it 3. This year Bumbershoot is going all out for their lineup announce with a two night adult prom extravaganza at The Croc. The house band will be the awesomely cool Allen Stone and it all goes down on 5/2 and 5/3. Tickets are available here and you can find the full press release below!
Bumbershoot, Seattle’s annual arts festival that takes place over Labor Day Weekend, The Crocodile, and 107.7 The End announce a 2013 lineup party fit for a king – a prom king. Washington native and soulful powerhouse Allen Stone takes the stage at The Crocodile for a prom themed two-night party, May 2 and 3. Stone will serve as the house band, entertaining with a mix of popular cover songs as well as his own original hits. Between sets, attendees will enjoy the first public announcement of the Bumbershoot 2013 lineup, a DJ-ed playlist of Bumbershoot artists, “best dressed” contests, and the crowning of prom king and queen. Prom Night With Allen Stone ticket information is below.
Why a prom themed performance? “In all honesty,” says Allen Stone, “an adult prom simply
sounded fun. But the more the idea became a reality, the more I realized that this was a great excuse for my community to get together and celebrate with one another. This isn't your normal ‘Allen Stone’ show... this is prom... and it's going to be silly. I want this to be an event for the ages!”
Attendees should start digging out their old prom getup now. To run for prom king and queen – and thus vie for a pair of Bumbershoot 3-Day Platinum Passes – ticketholders are encouraged to submit a photo of themselves in their prom garb to the Bumbershoot Facebook page along with which night they are attending.
